From Funabori station to Haneda T1 2018/10/19 16:14
I did a Hyperdia check & saw that from Funabori, I had to change line at Morishita station to Toei Subway Oedo Line. Then drop off at Daimon station & walk to Hamamatsucho station & take Tokyo Monorail Haneda Express before I can finally reach T1. I like to know when changing from 1 line to another at Morishita & from 1 station to another at Daimon, is there any escalator/elevator? I have 3 luggage & a little gal.

Of course taking Keisei Bus from Ichinoe station is far more convenient, but my flight is at 10:50am. So I am worried about morning peak hour traffic jam on the road.

In the event I do take this Keisei Bus, am I supposed to put all 3 luggage into the external compartment of the bus by myself? Or will there be an attendant on the bus who will alight to help? (The last time I boarded an airport limousine bus was many years ago, & the staff helped us put our luggage into the external compartment.) And outside Ichinoe station, where do I board this Keisei bus from? I do not want to screw up on the morning of my flight! I looked at the map & all it said was this:-

I hope some kind soul can help me out on this. Thanks so much!

You can also take Keikyu line to Haneda Airport Domestic Terminal.

See Route 3 and 4.

I don't think there is a staff at Ichinoe since the bus is not so frequent and Ichinoe is not the terminal bus stop. But if you have trouble with your luggage perhaps the driver will help you. Note that you are allowed to check about one baggage per one person, according to Keisei web page.

This might be not so strict, judging from that they say 原則1名様につきスーツケース1個程度まで meaning basically you are allowed to check about 1 suitcase per person.

I would take a subway from Funabori to Bakuro-Yokoyama, then transfer to a direct train from there (Higashi-Nihonbashi) to Haneda International (See Route 2 below).

If you want, you can use a lift from Bakuro-Yokoyama to Higashi-Nihonbashi (See red lines in the figure below).

I also checked with Google Maps. Actually, it indicated Limousine bus. But I would not taka a bus for a flight. If I uncheck the bus option, the route is the same as above. I have never handled suitcase by myself in Japan. The bus driver or attendant should do all.

hi frog1945,

What does the 2 downward arrows beside Sengakuji mean? I tried looking for a legend but could not find it on the website. I do not see the "Tra" sign which means transfer. Does it mean "Pass through without stopping"?

On the bottom of Hyperdia there is "help" link and if you click it you will see the Help content. Click "Search Result" then you will see the key to symbols. No, it is not so obvious, but please note that Hyperdia originally is a free service.

Hyperdia shows the double downward arrows are "transit station" (direct train) which is also obscure for foreign tourists. This train is co-operated by Toei subway and Keikyu railways. Until Sengakuji it is subway train while after that it is Keikyu train. But actually you don't need to change train at Sengakuji since the train goes through Sengakuji (it stops at Sengakuji and then departs from Sengakuji).

hi frog1954,

Thank you. I finally saw the small 'help' link right below the page & saw the legend.

You said "Until Sengakuji it is subway train while after that it is Keikyu train. But actually you don't need to change train at Sengakuji since the train goes through Sengakuji (it stops at Sengakuji and then departs from Sengakuji)." It is really hard for foreigners to fathom as there is no such system in my country. It is like "magic" to me. lol.

By the way, I called the 3rd party which I used to book this trip & was informed that the '1' in Haneda Airport is NOT '1' at all, but letter I. I, as in, International. I was relieved I discovered this misunderstanding early, and NOT on the morning of my flight! So now I am going from Funabori to Haneda International Terminal, not T1 as I thought.

Can you help me out with this please? Based on the following link below, does this mean that if I take the earlier train at 7:24, I will have to transfer 2 times? But if I stay on the same platform & wait, I can take the later train at 7:28 with only 1 transfer?

If you take the "Route 1", the train departing Higashinihombashi at 7:28 is an "Airport Express" which goes directly to Haneda Airport International Terminal. Note that you must transfer from Bakuroyokoyama to Higashinihombashi.

If you take the "Route 2", the train departing Higashinihombashi at 7:24 is a subway train which does not go to Haneda airport, so yes you need need to transfer at Daimon to Hamamatsucho and then take Monorail.

I am sorry for the complex routing, but there are so many people in Tokyo we need multiple train lines :). I hope you will enjoy the train system in Tokyo finally!

Re: From Funabori station to Haneda T1 2018/10/26 16:15
As in the link you provided, the best (fast, easy, and low-price) route by Jorudan requires one transfer; Funabori 7:03-7:18 Bakuro-Yokoyama/Higashi-Nihombashi 7:28-8:01 Haneda. Jorudan estimates it would take 5 minutes to walk from Bakuro-Yokoyama to Higashi-Nihombashi and you would have another 5 minutes to spare.
https://world.jorudan.co.jp/mln/en/?p=0&xpd=1&from=Funabori&to=Haneda-...

This is the timetable at Higashi-Nihombashi for trains bound for a direction of Haneda Airport on weekdays. All trains marked with 羽 are direct, or "Through Service" by Jorudan, to Haneda Airport, 羽田空港. So, you would have a choice of 7:00, 7:09, 7:16, 7:28, 7:30, 7:41, and 7:51 trains, or roughly one direct train to Haneda per ten minutes. The 7:28 one is Airport-Rapid-Limited Express.

Hi frog1954,

I managed to find a video clip of the transit from Higashi-Nihombanshi to Bakuroyokoyama (though I am going the other way). It is quite a walk isn't it? Now I just like to confirm that my understanding is correct as I am quite a 'hoko onchi' person. Please help. The direct airport train will stop at Higashi-Nihombashi from 7:24am to 7:28am right? I am thinking if I do not managed to reach Higashi-Nihombashi on time, according to the following link, I will have to take the next direct airport train at 7:30am. Is this correct?

OMG Luisp

Thank you for being so kind to a stranger! I truly appreciate that. Thank you! I was worried I might not make it on time for the 7:28 direct airport train. I have a daughter with me & things such as "Mummy, I have a tummy ache! I need to poop now!" nonsense can occur, you know.

Thank you for telling me the exact timing of the direct airport train too. Or else I will be spending a long time trying to figure out what is the difference the greenト羽 & blue急羽. Aren't they the same? Or are they not?

Re: From Funabori station to Haneda T1 2018/10/26 21:22
You already have an answer. As in the timetable by Hyperdia, Airport-Kaitoku does not pass the previous train to Haneda. The former 7:24 train arrives at Haneda at 7:39, and the latter 7:30 train gets to Haneda at 7:45. Airport-Kaito leaves on 7:28 and arrives at 7:41, just in between. There is a difference for which intervening stations the trains stop, but as far as a traveler to Haneda, you just have to confirm the train goes to Haneda. A few minutes difference does not matter. Just leave your hotel earlier.
http://www.hyperdia.com/cgi/en/intervaltime.html?dep_node=HIGASHI-NIHO...
http://www.haneda-tokyo-access.com/en/transport/trainlinemap.html

There is a legend for ト(To) and 急(Kyu) at the bottom of the page. To for Tokkyu(Limited Express) and Kyu for Kyuko(Express), but as I said, you do not have to care about it. This is a fairly frequent line. No train stops for a long time.

For a transfer from Bakuro-Yokoyama to Higashi-Nihombashi, the red line on the figure would help you.
https://www.kotsu.metro.tokyo.jp/subway/stations/bakuro-yokoyama/i/sol...

Your train from Funabori bound for Shinjuku/新宿 comes from the bottom-right and stop at the green platform #1. You take an elevator to the top and get out of the gate. Your next train to Haneda comes from the top-left and arrives at the pink platform #1. There are three choices to get to that platform.

1) Use two elevators, A4 in the middle of the map and another near B1. This requires ground transportation, which includes a road crossing. You need to wait for a signal over a broad avenue.
2) Take an underpass, involving two stairs/escalators.
3) Take a train to another direction from platform #2. The next station is Asakusabashi. This small station has an island platform. The transfer to a train in the opposite direction is just easy.
https://www.kotsu.metro.tokyo.jp/eng/services/subway/stations/asakusab...

As a traveler with the luggage, I would think of plan 3). To do so, I would leave earlier. The number of transfer would increase, but it is easier. If I could not leave early, I would take plan 2). If the weather is good enough, I might take plan 1) instead. This requires an earlier departure as in plan 3).
